What a Difference a Day Makes

by David Bellel

What a difference a day made
Less than twenty-four little hours
Brought the gloom and the showers
Where there used to be joy

My yesterday was true, dear
Today I’m feeling so blue, dear
My happy nights are through, dear
Since we went with Phil Hughes

What a difference a day makes
There’s a rainbow behindĀ  me
Skies above can’t be sunny
Since those pitches went amiss, boy am I pissed!

It’s hell when you find no chance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is Hughes

What a difference a day makes
There’s a rainbow behindĀ  me
Skies above can’t be sunny
Since those pitches went amiss, boy am I pissed!

It’s hell when you find no chance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is Hughes
Is Hughes

    I know. We’ve had a lot of Yankee stuff lately, but this is up there with the best stuff. And the singer is good too.
